A motorcyclist has died after a crash in London Road.Advertisement
Eyewitnesses reported seeing a black BMW and a black Kawasaki bike collide shortly before 8pm on Sunday (3 July).
Peter Charles who was first on the scene said the motorcyclist, a young man, died in his arms.
A number of drivers stopped and Mr Charles phoned 999 while other passers-by, including an off-duty detective, gave the man CPR. But they could not save him and he is understood to have died at the scene.
Mr Charles, from Clayton-le-Woods, said: “Having to push a car off someone and seeing them take their last breath is the most upsetting thing I’ve ever seen.
“Thoughts go out to his family and friends.”
The road was closed in both directions from Queen Street to Frenchwood Avenue throughout Sunday evening.
